As the popularity of large post-war housing complexes is declining, “intermediate” housing (medium-sized buildings) are making a comeback. A selection of images of this type of architecture is presented in the windows of the gallery, recalling the aesthetics of real estate ads: no human presence, no specific regional identity, and aiming for a certain neutrality. These images are actually extracted from press articles collected from the web. They are here accompanied by their caption texts, readable from inside the gallery.

This work questions the potential physical and psychological influence generated by the built environment on our bodies and minds.
